Casa Serena is the first villa built within the ALTAVISTA DA LUZ domain and is being used as the show villa for the project. It has been designed by a renowned architect, and interior-designed and project-managed by HAP & Associates.
Casa Serena has many unique features such as:
The architect and the project management team have worked extensively to ensure the practicality and proper flow throughout the villa as well as transmitting a feeling of warmth and well-being.
The dramatic double-height entrance leads to the spacious living areas and the good-sized cloak room. The open living area includes a sitting room with a double-sided minimalist bespoke fireplace, a 10-person dining area and an open-plan kitchen area. This entire open space gives direct access to the barbecue and outside dining area, as well as the outside sitting area leading to the very large covered terrace, and the “flush” overflow pool. A quaint view of the garden and the ocean can be enjoyed from the living area and terrace. The special pillar-less design of the villa with its minimalist floor-to-ceiling sliding doors throughout, and average 3m-high ceilings (10-ft) further enhances the feeling of space and airiness.
An architectural staircase gives access to the upper and lower floors as well as a spacious ground-floor bedroom suite.
The top floor includes two additional large-size guest suites, a very spacious master suite with its walk-in closet and master bath (with a glazed architectural ceiling), and a good-size “open” office area with a floor-to-ceiling “library” and a desk for two. All bedrooms have access to a large (c. 45 m2) covered terrace where some of the most enjoyable views of the ocean, the village of Praia da Luz and its famous Black Rock, as well as the Monchique mountains can be enjoyed. In fact, the beauty of the views rests in that you can enjoy beautiful day AND night views due to the commanding position of this plot over the surrounding areas. Enjoying a lazy “grace matinée” breakfast or a relaxing afternoon or evening drink while being mesmerized by the peaceful surroundings, bird songs, and picture-perfect postcard views is truly magic.
The lower floor is reserved for optional leisure activities (games room with wet bar, cinema room, gym, sauna and hammam, wine cellar) and a guest studio and laundry room¹. A 2-car garage and very practical and extensive interior and exterior storage areas complete the amenities of this one-of-a-kind no-expense-spared full-feature villa.
Similar amenities are found in other villas within the “Signature” line of Leisure Homes villas.
